Jubba Youth Community Association
Through sport, mentoring, employment, and advice and guidance projects, JYCA has managed to engage, empower, develop and give opportunities to many young people.
We support unemployed 16-24-year-olds to move into employment using the power of sport. As a youth charity, we use football and other sports as a tool to engage with young people, as well as teach them the key life and work skills they need to move into sustainable employment or training. Our programmes operate throughout England and Wales.
JYCA was set up 2007 by young people who sought to provide a support network for young people in Islington. It has done this through connecting young people together through sports, mentoring, practical advice and guidance and giving young people a platform to speak.
Over the years JYCA has worked collaboratively with Listen Up, Islington Faith Forum, Lift/platform Youth hubs, Prince Trust, Islington Council, Arsenal in the Community, access to sports and Finsbury Park Mosque which aims to give young people a voice about issues affecting them in the current socio-political context and to have an impact on decision-makers.
